ISO standard for whistleblower systems
In the summer of 2021, the new ISO standard for whistleblower systems is expected to be published. Lantero is involved in the process through the SIS committee representing Sweden.
The standard is voluntary and will be a guide for organizations to create robust and well-functioning whistleblower systems.
The work with the standard takes into consideration that the conditions for different organizations differ greatly, but that there are many issues that can be addressed through common general principles.
While it can be difficult to set up general rules for how reporting or processing should be set up, it is possible to point out which issues need to be discussed, how one can reason about risk areas or possible conflict areas given industry, size or type of organization.
A further challenge is, of course, that the standard should work internationally, despite the fact that the degree of maturity when it comes to whistleblower systems differs greatly and that organizations can function quite differently in different countries.See all blogposts
